Thanksgiving Football Preview

Our Thanksgiving Football Special Section was included in Wednesday's print editions. 

It features a story on Seymour statistician John Commune, who is retiring after 44 years on the sidelines.

ANSONIA — With his pen and notebook in hand, John Commune will walk the Seymour sideline tonight for the final time.

He will record every pass, every run and every touchdown in his shorthand style just as he always has. He’s been doing so since 1968, his junior year at Seymour High. Commune has missed just two games in his 44 seasons as the Wildcats statistician.

Now, he says, it’s time to retire that pen and notebook that’s been a staple in the Valley for so long.

“I’m getting old,” said the 62-year-old Commune, a lifelong Seymour resident. “The cold weather, it’s no fun. But I’ve enjoyed every minute of it. There’s been a lot of good memories. The coaches and kids have been great.”
